Knowing is not enough: exploring the missing link between climate change knowledge and action of German forest owners and managers

Adaptation to climate change is a complex but urgent task in forest management; however, a lack of action is widely reported. This study shows that adaptive action on both stand and business levels is missing in forest

Phenology of wood formation in larch (Larix decidua Mill.) trees growing along a 1000-m elevation gradient in the French Southern Alps

Spring temperature increase is the main driver of larch tree wood formation onset along a 1000-m elevation gradient in the Southern Alps, while its cessation is more probably controlled by water stress at the lowest elevation and

Scaling-up individual-level allometric equations to predict stand-level fuel loading in Mediterranean shrublands

Allometric biomass equations developed for individual shrubs can be applied to estimate shrubland fuels from measurements of cover and average height by species. Context Shrubs are a major component of surface fuels in many fire-prone ecosystems. Shrub

The utility of terrestrial photogrammetry for assessment of tree volume and taper in boreal mixedwood forests

This study showed that digital terrestrial photogrammetry is able to produce accurate estimates of stem volume and diameter across a range of species and tree sizes that showed strong correspondence when compared with traditional inventory techniques. This

Genetic variation and early selection in Larix decidua Mill. from progeny test in Romania

High genetic variation and determinism for quantitative traits of Larix decidua Mill. were found in a progeny test established at its south-eastern limit of distribution area. The top range families are from both native populations and artificial

Multi-temporal dataset of stand and canopy structural data in temperate and Mediterranean coppice forests

We provided long-term stand and canopy structural data from permanent monitoring plots representative of some most diffuse temperate and Mediterranean forests, under different coppice management regimes. Periodic inventories were performed in the surveyed plots since the 1970s.

Harmonised projections of future forest resources in Europe

A dataset of forest resource projections in 23 European countries to 2040 has been prepared for forest-related policy analysis and decision-making. Due to applying harmonised definitions, while maintaining country-specific forestry practices, the projections should be usable from

Monitoring disturbance intervals in forests: a case study of increasing forest disturbance in Minnesota

We develop analytical methods and explore trends in disturbance interval via systematic forest inventory observations at a bioregional scale. Context Our study spans the dynamic ecotone at the intersection of southern boreal forest, mixed hardwood forest, and

Geographic variation of tree height of three pine species (Pinus nigra Arn., P. pinaster Aiton, and P. pinea L.) gathered from common gardens in Europe and North-Africa

This datapaper collects individual georeferenced tree height data from Pinus nigra Arn., P. pinaster Aiton, and P. pinea L. planted in common gardens in France, Germany, Morocco, and Spain. The data can be used to assess genetic

Increasing temperatures over an 18-year period shortens growing season length in a beech (Fagus sylvatica L.)-dominated forest

Using long-term measurements in a mature beech (Fagus sylvatica L.)-dominated forest located in east Belgium, this paper showed that spring and autumn temperature increases during the last two decades led to an earlier end and a shortening
